I would like to take a moment to congratulate the Champagne Haitians on Martha's Vineyard for starting a long-overdue campaign to Make Martha's Vineyard Haiti Again.  I think the golf courses and Covid-proof presidential party tents and yacht houses...

The Last American Songwriter

Is Fast Heart Mart the last American songwriter?  No.  Is he one of the last American songwriters?  I hope not. The answer to the question posed in the comment section of the documentary below, "why isn't Fast Heart Mart famous" is that a culture o...

Bad Americans

An interesting snapshot of the zeitgeist of the Bush years, when liberals were still interested in dissent and 9/11 truth, "Bad Americans" is from my 2008 album Blinded By Self-Righteous Degenerates.  At the time, it was still considered an indictmen...

American Ayatollahs & Artless Fundamentalism

I can't write about this topic anymore.  Not only because it makes me viscerally nervous and ill, but because to say it a thousand more times would be even more gratuitous than it already is.  The only reason I'm writing this is so I never have to wr...

The 8-Bit Existential Allegory

Garage d'Or

Today is the 10-year anniversary of Garage d'Or, my distorted rock album.  Many of the songs were very old when they were recorded 10 years ago, but they never found a place on any of the other albums.  Tired of waiting, the songs started a mutiny, a...

Most people don't know that in the Old West, The U.N. and New World Health Organization distributed free blankets to the Native populations of the Western Territories.  Touting a forced, disingenuous interest in the "BIPOC" communities of the day, we...

My friends David & Shelly need to get back to the U.S. for medical reasons.  I met them last year in San Miguel de Allende, where they helped me to escape a weird situation in which my landlord had sicced all kinds of dubious government entities on m...

Everything I Have Is Yours

Today is the 10-year anniversary of the release of Everything I Have Is Yours, my only gospel album to date.  It consists of about half originals and half covers.  The originals and public-domain cover songs are on the YouTube playlist.  The entire a...
